I think we need to move away from the text installer
I prefer the text installer. Keep it light, keep it fast, even if that means that the user has to do some of the work. It is not like it's something you're going to do every day. Yes, it requires a little more work to set up and configure, but you end up with your
system, customized to your hardware and personal preferences. And it will not change until you decide to change it.
I am afraid that after a graphical installer, we'll move towards "I want everything to be point and click, and everything to be done for me automatically, like <insert flavor of *buntu>"
. To achieve this you need a whole little OS in the installer, hardware detection on each boot, all sorts of polling daemons and services. I see that as contrary to the VL philosophy.
